Rick Rowe says he's found a way to protect our homes from the sun and save a little money in the process. Here's the new way to keep cool and it's all ArkLaTex Made.
Now, you know when we say solar you think it's panels using the sun to create power, but think polyester.
It's a coated polyester and it blocks, reflects and absorbes the heat before it hits the window. It even looks good doing its job.
"People said to tell me about your screens, I like your screens. They didn't know they were solar" says Barbara Blaylock.
That's the appeal of Sunshield Solar Screens, they look good outside and feel good inside.
Even in the heat of the day, you can look out the window but others can't look in.
When Sunshield Solar Screen owner, Tom Byrns, installs one of his windows, the response is sometimes immediate.
"They will be in the house and the room got cooler and they didn't know what it was" says Byrns.
Byrns has done more than 350 homes. There are lots of reasons to love solar screens.
They're easy to install or take off and the space age polyester block reflects and absorbes up to 90% of the heat.
